“Surveillance activities were conducted in major towns and the state capital in the last three days and that it revealed deliberate hoarding of fuel to create artificial scarcity. “The taskforce consequently issues strong warning to affected filling stations which are already listed as direct culprits to open up their tanks and dispense fuel to the members of the public.”While urging marketers to be public spirited in the pricing of petroleum products, the taskforce reminded them of the already harsh economic situation on the members of the public.“Failure to stop the fuel hoarding and take humanitarian notice of prevailing economic situation in the country will lead to severe sanctions,” the statement warned.
